Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Thank you for your interest in publishing papers in Catalysts. We invite you to contribute original and high-quality interdisciplinary research papers devoted to currently important topics in catalysis and related subjects to be published in this Special Issue. Studies significantly advancing our fundamental understanding of and that focus on the catalytic conversion of municipal solid wastes (MSW) for the efficient and clean utilization of all components will be given primary consideration. Field studies are preferred, while papers describing laboratory experiments must demonstrate significant advances in the methodology or mechanistic understanding and have a clear connection to the catalytic pathway and catalysis chemistry. Descriptive, repetitive, incremental or regional-scale studies with limited novelty will not be considered.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
